Winemaker Notes

This is a great white wine, yellow-hued with a golden-green iridescence and a bright, crystalline appearance. It is fruity on the nose, with a mix of tropical, green apple, banana, kiwi and melon aromas. It is smooth and pleasantly acidic on the palate, giving way to a blend of ripe fruit flavors enhanced by the peach. The maceration on lees provides it with body and structure that give it its strong personality. A wine with a lingering aftertaste, very aromatic and slightly bitter, which is typical of this variety.

Ideal with fish and seafood. As this is a wine with great structure, aroma and good acidity, it is also ideal for enjoying special moments with friends.
This wine is bottled with cork or screw cap closure*.

*Specific closure type cannot be requested.

Wine Enthusiast

Dusty apple and minerally aromas are regionally and varietally correct. Flavors of apple and citrus are standard, while an unbroken finish is holding form. Drink now.

Best known for flavorful fortified wines but also producing excellent yet underappreciated dry wines, Portugal is unique in that it relies almost exclusively on its many indigenous grape varieties. Bordering Spain to the west on the Iberian Peninsula, this is a land where tradition reigns supreme, perhaps due in part to its relative geographical and, for much of the 20th century, political isolation. Portugal is a long and narrow country, which makes for considerable diversity in climate and wine styles, with milder weather in the north and significantly more rainfall near the coast. With the exception of Port, most Portuguese wines have struggled to garner attention in the international marketplace, perhaps due to the unfamiliar and difficult to pronounce nature of most of its grape varieties and terminology, which means that there are many excellent values to be discovered here by the adventurous consumer. The country is perhaps better known for being the world’s leader in cork production than for its wine.

Port, made in the Douro Valley, is the fortified wine for which Portugal is most famous. The same region also produces full-bodied dry wines made from the same set of grape varieties, which include Touriga Nacional and Tinta Roriz (Spain’s Tempranillo). The nation’s other important fortified wine, Madeira, is produced on the eponymous island off the North African coast. Other dry wines of the mainland include the tart, slightly effervescent Vinho Verde of the north, the bright, elegant reds and whites of the Dão, and the bold, jammy reds of the Alentejo.
